Editor's Notes: In and amongst adidas' extensive product catalog is an icon of the late 80s – the EQT line.
Popularized in the early 90s, the EQT (Equipment) line was celebrated for its minimal yet disruptive approach to sneaker and apparel design. Throughout the 2000s, Three Stripes saw to it that the EQT line would undergo a renaissance, bringing the line and its iconic silhouettes styling back into the sneaker world spotlight.
The famed franchise has been worn by celebrities the world over, leading to powerhouse collaborations. Most notably, Pusha T has had several under his belt, with releases such as the EQT Support Ultra King Push "Bodega Babies" and EQT Guidance '93 Pusha T "Black Market."
As adidas continues to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Equipment, several silhouettes from the Race Walk OG to Prototype and CSG Equipment '91 will receive special-edition releases. Next up for some time in the limelight is the Running Support ’93, courtesy of Footpatrol.
For its collab, the UK retailer looks to the countries three highest peaks as a point of inspiration. A testament to the wonder and grandeur of the great outdoors, the three peaks are symbolic of challenge and aspiration, much like adidas' own Three Stripes. The mixed suede and mesh upper blends pinks, reds, and greys with hints of purple and black to build a tapestry of the sedimentary colors found in mountainous regions.
Given the cult popularity of the EQT line, it's likely these will be met with high demand – setting the tone for the remainder of the 30th-anniversary release calendar.
